AI is a major focus area of Aalto University and the Department of Computer Science. Building on the department's strong tradition that includes neural network pioneers Teuvo Kohonen and Erkki Oja.

Our research contributes both to the fundamentals of AI across its many subfields, as well as to the accelerating practical impact AI has on businesses and societies.

The Department of Computer Science is a key player in the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence FCAI, a major ecosystem of academic, private and public sector partners.

Artificial intelligence model developed by Finnish researchers predicts which key of the immune system opens the locks of coronavirus

With an artificial intelligence (AI) method developed by researchers at Aalto University and University of Helsinki, researchers can now link immune cells to their targets and for example uncouple which white blood cells recognize SARS-CoV-2. The developed tool has broad applications in understanding the function of immune system in infections, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.
